  • Any Way to Lower 'case page-name.html'

    Anyone know if there's a way to make SD lower case the html page name created from the product name?
    Many Thanks

    Not within SD I think.

    However you could use Access to change ActinicCatalog.mdb, table Product , field sSingleProductPageName. This is for the Product Pages. Sections are done via table CatalogSection, field sPageName.

    I tried that here manually on a single product page (with SD closed down and a backup made just in case) and it worked fine.

      Is there any advantage to doing this? Aesthetically lower case urls are much better I feel and I really don't like Sellerdeck's insistence on capitals. However unless there's an obvious ranking advantage I'm not sure why it should be done?

        Thanks Norman, I'll give it a go.

        No, just me being too fussy I think, I manually go in and set it to lower case but don't always remember, it's purely down to aesthetics and just wondered if there were an easy way to achieve it by default.

          Stick with all lower case.

          Dependant on whether you have a Windows or Linux host, file names can load differently.

          Windows servers are case insensitive.

          If you have www.site.com/Link & www.site.com/link - Windows server will treat them as the same.

          A Linux server will correctly treat them as seperate files.

          EDIT: To the OP,

          As indicated by Norman, you can do this inside of the ActinicCatalog.mdb if you're running access version of the site.

          Brucey bonus - here's the code to do this in an Access query:

          Code:
          UPDATE [Catalog Section]
          SET [Catalog Section].sPageName = StrConv([sPageName],2);
          The "2" at the end can be replaced with the following syntax

          1 - uppercase
          2 - lowercase
          3 - camel case


          Hope this helps!

            You can change the page name manually. It's the 'Page Name' field in the 'Product Page' tab of the Product Details.

            If your website is on a Windows server, you don't want to change the case after Google has indexed the page. Unless you provide a 301 redirect from the old URL to the new one, the page will lose all rankings. If you're on a Linux server, I think it should be OK, because they are not case sensitive. But I'm not an expert on that side of things.
